WOLF CREEK HERITAGE MUSEUM NOTES

MUSEUM HAPPENINGS

The fundraiser for the museum held Saturday night in Higgins was fun and a success. We will have the tally of attendance and fundraised next week. We held the event in Higgins sports facility and it was very nice with a serving area, restrooms, and plenty of space. Our program was "Murder at the Museum" with a cast of characters from the game "Clue". The audience had to vote on the killer, the weapon, and the room. We had two winners. We thank our volunteer characters and especially Myra Karnes for getting our costumes accessories and writing our script. Pam Haines played ghostly music. The evening was fun and ended with our auctions. Mr. James McGinley was our auctioneer and our announcer for the murder play introducing the characters. Our dinner was prepared and served by Kay Boughan and was delicious as always. So another successful fundraiser thanks to all the people in the area who support us.

HISTORICAL MUSINGS

To assist in the War effort in 1918, Every school in Lipscomb County was urged to form a Junior Auxiliary of the American Red Cross society. The Junior Red Cross was not a local organization, but was national. It was part of the American Red Cross society, as the "limb is part of the tree".
"The purpose of the Junior Red Cross is to educate for service. It capitalizes the energy stimulated by the events of the day, for constructive patriotism" The Juniors will assist in bettering the community conditions and community sanitation. They will be taught, lessons in first aid to the injured and to assist those in distress, along with that lessons in thrift."

Ivan C. Baucom was the Chairman School Committee. The organization is still available and assists with military and community services but especially disaster relief.
